Rumer Willis And Val Chmerkovskiy To Dance To 'Bootylicious'

Rumer Willis Talks About Her ‘Bootylicious’ Body, Biggest ‘DWTS’ Competition, And Channeling Beyoncé

Rumer Willis’ body is majorly benefiting from her stint on Dancing with the Stars, so you better get ready for her jelly — she’s going to be channeling her inner Beyoncé tonight.

Rumer transformed into a Disney Diva during last week’s episode of DWTS, and her sea witch samba earned her a spot at the top of the leaderboard with an almost-perfect score of 39. This week, she’ll be shedding Ursula’s purple skin to portray a totally different diva, and she and partner Val Chmerkovskiy will have to twerk hard to do their song justice.

According to ABC, Rumer Willis will shaking her tailfeathers to the Destiny’s Child hit “Bootylicious” for tonight’s Spring Break-themed show. During an interview with E! News, Rumer revealed that she and Val will perform a jazz routine with “a lot of booty” (are the Val Chmerkovskiy fans out there drooling yet?).

It makes sense for Rumer to do a dance that requires a lot of booty shaking — she already thinks that her butt is the real star of Dancing with the Stars.

“Scout laRue and @buuski with the real star of #DWTS,” Rumer captioned the Instagram photo above.

Unfortunately, Rumer might have a hard time finding junk in the trunk to shake tonight — she told E! News‘ Ali Fedotowsky that her entire body is “tighter” after a few weeks of grueling dance rehearsals.

“I just feel really strong. I feel like there are things that I can do that I wasn’t able to do before.”

Rumer Willis thinks that she and Val Chmerkovskiy have a shot at winning the Mirrorball Trophy, but she’s not quite as confident as she was a few weeks ago. As the Inquisitr previously reported, she upset some Dancing with the Stars fans last month when she claimed that she and Val had little competition. Now, Rumer seems to think that Patti LaBelle might be her biggest threat.

“She’s such a fierce powerhouse and just such a personality,” Rumer told E! News.

Because Rumer is such a big fan of Patti, she was probably thrilled when she found out that she would actually get to dance alongside the “Lady Marmalade” singer. Tonight, the dancers will split up into two teams: Team Trouble and Team Yolo. Rumer and Patti are on Team Trouble, which will be doing a group dance to “Trouble” by Iggy Azalea. Their team includes Val Chmerkovskiy, Artem Artem Chigvintsev, Chris Soules, Witney Carson, Riker Lynch, and Allison Holker.

Team YOLO will be dancing to “Wipeout” by The Surfaris. The second group consists of Nastia Liukin, Derek Hough, Willow Shields, Mark Ballas, Robert Herjavec, Kym Johnson, Noah Galloway, and Sharna Burgess.

Do you think Rumer Willis will do Beyoncé justice tonight by getting “Bootylicious” on Dancing with the Stars?
